You might not be able to buy happiness, but you can buy smoothies, and that is basically the same thing!
If you have never visited Smoothie King in Destin, you have been missing out, friend. This incredible smoothie shop is one of over 800 Smoothie King franchise locations around the world. Yes, you read that right. One of over 800!
So, what makes this smoothie place so popular? It is all because Smoothie King’s smoothies are blended with a purpose!
Smoothie King founder Steve Kuhnau suffered from chronic food allergies, and he started on a quest to blend smoothies in an effort to remedy those allergies. Back in 1973, Kuhnau mixed various nutrients, proteins, and real fruit to improve his overall health. This led to creation of numerous smoothies with a health-related purpose, and the foundation of the first Smoothie King juice bar in New Orleans in 1989. From then, the store took off, going international in 2003.
When you visit Smoothie King in Destin/Miramar Beach (or anywhere in the world), you will find a wide range of smoothies that help you power workouts, lose weight, meet your wellness or nutrition goals, and feel just plain good about yourself. Each smoothie has been handcrafted by the company’s blendologists, and uses real ingredients. This includes real fruit, vegetables, nuts, proteins, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. You will not find any smoothie on the menu that contains high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, or any other ingredients that are bad for the body.
Smoothie King features Slim Blends, Wellness Blends, Fitness Blends, and Take a Break blends. Each of these blends includes smoothies with a specific purpose. Slim Blends are crafted to help you burn fat and slim down, while Wellness Blends are designed to strengthen your immune system and balance your diet. Athletes love the Fitness Blends, as they feature ingredients to help you build muscle and tone, as well as build endurance and recover faster while working towards your fitness goals. Of course, our personal favorites are the Take a Break Blends. These are perfect for all of you vacationers who are looking to relax, reward yourselves, and enjoy living in the moment. Seriously, take one of these yummy treats to the beach, and you will see what we mean!
Besides offering amazing smoothies, Smoothie King is on a mission to improve the world – not only through healthy smoothies, but through community service. When you buy one of their smoothies, you are investing in that mission. For example, Smoothie King partners with the Challenged Athletes Foundation and every shot of certain smoothies helps the organization get closer to providing adaptive sports equipment for these astounding athletes. Smoothie King also helped a talented athlete and bone cancer survivor enjoy the vacation of a lifetime with her family in Hawaii, which was made possible by all the supportive and loyal Smoothie King customers. It feels great to be a part of this company’s vision to be an integral part of every health journey.
